Jewelry Care Guide

Crystal Bracelets and Malas

Each natural bead of our bracelets and malas are unique, so there might be slight color differences due to the nature of the crystals.

Care & Maintenance
- Store your bracelet or mala in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches.
- Avoid contact with water.
- Remove your bracelet or mala before washing hands, swimming, and/or applying products (e.g. perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion).
- Avoid hard contact (i.e. knocking against objects) that can scratch or chip the jewelry.
- When not in use, hang the Mala with the tassel facing down to avoid its bending.

Jewelry made with Swarovski® crystals

Swarovski® crystals are precision cut loose crystals made from a combination of quartz, sand, and minerals. Manufactured since 1895, they enjoy continued popularity thanks to their unmatched brilliance and first-class quality. Swarovski® is a registered trademark of Swarovski AG. 

Care & Maintenance
All Swarovski® crystals are traditionally crafted and therefore very delicate. As a result, special care is required. Please, follow the following care instructions:
- Store your jewelry in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches.
- Avoid contact with water.
- Remove jewelry before washing hands, swimming, and/or applying products (e.g. perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion), as this could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discoloration and loss of crystal brilliance.
- Avoid hard contact (i.e. knocking against objects) that can scratch or chip the crystal.
- Polish your jewelry frequently with a lint-free cloth to maintain its original sparkling condition.

925 Sterling Silver

Made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, 925 sterling silver is one of the most popular materials for jewelry making thanks to its durability. Unlike pure silver, which is too soft to work with, sterling silver is harder, making the metal perfect for more intricate and complex jewelry designs.

Care & Maintenance
To maintain the brilliant shine of your sterling silver jewelry, avoid any contact with water. While pure water does not damage 925 sterling silver, most water we encounter is not purified. To keep that enviable shine intact, store your silver in an airtight bag with an anti-tarnish strip. Silver is durable, but can be scratched if care is not taken. To polish it without scratching, use either a special jewelry or microfiber cloth.

When not wearing your jewelry, be sure to store it in a dry place, preferably in the container it came in. This helps prevent scratching and maintains color for plated and silver pieces. Always remove your jewelry when applying scents, lotions and sprays - or even better, always put your jewelry on last before heading out the door.  

Gold Vermeil

Gold vermeil jewelry is popular and more difficult to pronounce than to care for. Vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a special style of gold plating that is also referred to as silver gilt. Vermeil is a gold coating that is laid over the top of a sterling silver base, which gives you the look of yellow or rose gold jewelry at a insurpassible value. Vermeil provides long-lasting color and shine.

Care & Maintenance
To keep your gold vermeil jewelry looking beautiful and shiny, avoid any contact with chlorine, bleach, and sweat. To clean, use a soft dry microfiber cloth to gently buff it. Do not use chemical cleaners, as it is likely to strip the jewelry of its gold finish. 

Solid Gold

Gold in its purest form (24k) is too soft to work with. To make it more structurally sound and durable for wear, alloys are added. Typically alloys that are used include brass , copper, palladium, nickel, and/or silver. This combination of pure gold and alloys creates solid gold (AKA 14k gold), meaning your beautiful pieces won’t tarnish time. This tough durable metal is perfect for anyone with an active life.

Care & Maintenance
Show your solid gold jewelry some love by mixing lukewarm water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl to clean it. Soak the jewelry in the soapy solution for a minute and then using a soft-bristled brush (a toothbrush will suffice), gently scrub your jewelry. Remove any soapy residue by rinsing with warm water and blot dry with a soft microfiber cloth. 

Rhodium Plated

Rhodium is a special type of plating often used to maintain the brilliant white in silver and white gold. A silver-white metallic element that is part of the platinum family of metals, Rhodium plating is laid over the top of a sterling silver or alloyed gold base, making the jewelry more resistant to corrosion and tarnish, as well as giving it long-lasting color and shine.

Care & Maintenance
Wash your jewelry in a solution of warm soapy water using a soft-bristled brush. Rinse away any soapy residue and dry with a soft microfiber cloth. 

316L Stailess Steel

316L stainless steel is otherwise known as 316L surgical-grade stainless steel. Made of steel and chromium, it is considerably more durable than silver. Its bright and silvery finish, which is resistant to tarnish, is a popular and affordable choice for fashion jewelry.

Care & Maintenance
Simply pour warm water into a small bowl mixed with some dishwashing soap. Using a soft cloth, gently wipe the jewelry until it is clean. Remove any remaining soap with a moistened cloth dipped in clean water. To maintain that beautiful shine, use either a jewelry polish or a special polishing cloth.
